I am passionate about the power of music and its ability to reach people.

Growing up in a musical household, I was immersed in a musical culture that brought people together. My path to become a Music Therapist has been the most meaningful, exhilarating and personal endeavour.

I am a Registered Music Therapist working with children and adolescents with intellectual disabilities within the public sector and private practice. Alongside this, I specialise in supporting child mental health, in particular those experiencing trauma and/or are at significant harm to their well-being.

I enjoy working alongside other professionals and assisting in creating a community culture of well-being and care. My objective within the practice of Music Therapy is to work alongside, supporting and understanding different communities and to promote the development of services in New Zealand.
